It is now available to purchase for a suggested price of $1,099.99 USD:

Highlights of the new PDT-FP1 include the ability to capture and transmit content from virtually anywhere; simple operation; optimized battery efficiency; reliable heat dissipation; wireless livestreaming capabilities; versatile input interfaces; support for broadcasting high-quality, low-latency video; and real-time, off-site network monitoring during data transfer.
